Eldorado National Forest, USDA Forest Service.
Notice of proposed new fee site.
The Eldorado National Forest is planning to charge a $10 fee for the overnight camping and a $5 fee for extra vehicles at the Lovers Leap Campground, located on the Placerville Ranger District. This existing campground has been available for use without a fee prior to this time. Funds from the new campground fees will be used for the continued operation and maintenance of Lovers Leap Campground. The Eldorado National Forest currently has 14 other campgrounds at which fees are charged under the Recreation Enhancement Act. These campgrounds are often fully booked throughout the use season. A business analysis of Lover's Leap Campground has shown that people desire having this sort of recreation experience on the Eldorado National Start Printed Page 27074Forest. A market analysis indicates that the $10/per night fee and $5/per extra vehicle is both reasonable and acceptable for this sort of unique recreation experience. Use of the campground will remain on a first come/first serve basis. Advance reservations will not be available.
The new fees at Lovers Leap Campground will become effective May 1, 2008.
